Des Moines is quite the place to live. For starters, it’s home to the Iowa State Fair, so you can take care of your fruit/vegetable/livestock/farming needs every year. Who doesn’t love a good fair? There’s also a farmer’s market happening every week downtown. It’s also ethnically and socially diverse and ranks one of the best places to live a LGBTQ lifestyle.
